Product Description
“Each of us has a story and part of that story can be told just by asking questions about our names.”

Are you looking for a fun icebreaker activity to do with older students? This is a great way to learn students' names and for students to learn about each other. In pairs, students interview each other with specific questions about their names. Then students introduce one another and share what they’ve learned about their partner’s name.

This can be used in any English or Social Science class since you can show the links between someone’s name and their own history and traditions. In English classes, I like to emphasize the idea of storytelling as we do the activity. But you can use this for any subject area when you want a good introductory/icebreaker activity.

Included in the download:
Title page, teacher instructions, and student handout containing interview questions.

If you're looking for another icebreaker to use in a History class, check out "The History of ME" activity:
